I'm getting ready to tile this weekend and can't decide on the following:

When tiling a wall, is it better to lay all full tiles on the entire wall and not worry about cutting tiles until the entire wall is filled with tiles, then come back and cut tiles an needed one by one, backbutter each and stick to the wall
As I tile each row, measure and cut the ends right then

Option #2 seems to save a lot of running aroung cutting tiles while the
adhesive will be drying on the wall.

Any ideas very much appreciated.

Not being the speedyist person a live I did our shower surround via option 2.
I actually back buttered every tile but thats a different story.

I like to install the cuts as I go up the wall. :)
